i'd like to get a wheelgun or 3, but seems most of them around here run about the same price as higher-end 1911's, and right now i'm not financially able to drop $600+ on a 6 shooter when i can more easily drop $400-500 on a spankin new XD-9 or lightly used Glock
I'm 39 but this July I'll turn 39 again. My carry gun is a S&W 357 Combat Magnum 2". I have to say though it's not a real joy to shoot, but is small and slim. You know dynamite in a small package. My under the pillow gun is a SA TRP 1911 Operator with a light on it. It's a little heavy for CCW and I have a problem putting a $1600 gun in a holster.
I'm 39 for a few more months. Own more Revolvers than Autos (8-2) but they are all sa or antiques. Why must we choose? Us gun nuts should stick together. Trying to choose between the XD9-sc and the S&W Thunder Ranch Tactical (4" shrouded barrel w/ rail, full moon clips, and same ammo as my Officers).
But like Olsen said, prbably have to wait a bit on price ($400 vs $1200)
Im 32 and own a Ruger GP100 which I shoot in IDPA matches (one of only three revolver shooters there). I also have a S&W 617 which I like and I CCW a S&W model 60.
I catch alot of grief from people but I can shoot pretty well.
Why do they need 15 round?
I'm not a revolver guy, but we were just at the shop the other day and they have a used S&W model 60. I must say, that thing felt great! If I had the money I would have left with that stainless beauty.
I've been 39 for the last 11 years.
Most of my training has been done using simiauto guns. I would carry a wheel gun as a back up, but my department forbids it by policy. I am 28 years old.
I don't know. A lot of us disagree with it. Our department is just now getting tasers so we are rewriting the use of force police. We are trying to get that amended in the process.
More of us young guys than I though also.
I liked the Beretta PX4, but my Blackhawk is quickly growing on me. Not surprising since my favorite, go to gun, is a Model 94 30-30...
Maybe one day I will be able to afford both.
I'm in the less "wise" category to some....I'm 24, however, If I'm not carrying my XD-40, I'm carrying my S&W .357, They're more reliable, dependable, I'd place my life on line quicker with a revolver than I would a semi auto. Even though I've never had my XD jam, stove pipe yes, but not jam. I don't carry speed clips when I carry my revolver because I know it's going to work period. I carry spare mags with my XD cause there could be a slight chance something could go wrong.
I'm 68 and only been shooting regularly for 3 years, and I don't intend to stop anytime soon.
I turn 54 on tthe 17th, and I don't shoot or trust anything that does not begin with a 4 (or higher).
Is there anyone older than 68? I was just wondering because I have a friend on this forum who is 68. LOL
I just got my first revolver, S&W686SSR. I'm 28 and have now got bitten by the revolver bug. Am already looking for my next smith just cannot decide which one. My be a model 60 or somthing small to carry. Just to many to choose from.
Can We Close This?
I am 75, and going strong!!! Still deciding what I want to do when I grow up.
If I ain't careful I am going to slip into that last age group.
I'm 50 and received a Ruger Security Six a couple days ago as an early birthday gift.
